The Board of Trustees of Stanford University has approved plans for its proposed Stanford University Redwood City Campus located at 405 Broadway. The plans will be submitted in early 2016 to the city of Redwood City for design approval.
This project will be the university’s first significant expansion outside of its main campus. Groundbreaking is tentatively scheduled for early fall of 2016. The first phase of the development is scheduled to be completed by 2019.
“Stanford’s Redwood City campus will be infused with the ethos of the main campus, drawing from programmatic, cultural and design attributes. It will feel like Stanford. Covered arcades along with the greenway connecting buildings and landscaped spaces; the use of warm, high-quality building materials in the Stanford palette; and spaces of active and passive recreation are just a few examples,” said David Lenox, university architect, in a prepared statement.
The operations of Stanford that will be housed in Redwood City include a number of uses, drawn from several areas of the university. These will include the Graduate School of Business, administration for the School of Medicine, Stanford Libraries and University Archives, the administration units of Business Affairs, Lands, Building and Real Estate, Human Resources, Residential & Dining Enterprises and the Office of Development.
The first phase of the proposed campus will feature four modern office buildings, outdoor dining areas and plazas, a child care center, parking garage, a glass-atrium fitness center and its own sustainable central utility plant.
